THE substance of this little book was delivered by myself, in the form of x Lecture, at the Royal Institution, Albemarle Street, on the 1 7th of April, 1863, alid is a record of the observations which I have made during my experiments in Fish Hatching carried on during the winter months. From time to time I have reported progress in the columns of The Field, and have now, by the permission of the Editor, been enabled to embody my notes in these pages. I have, however, added much information though I contiilue to speak in the first person derived from the experiences of others, kindly communicated to me and also from closer subsequent investigation on my own part, I trust that those who read the book will find it useful, and that it will enable them to carry out Fish Hatching on their own account. I must here record my sincere thanks to Professor Faraday for his kind attention, and also to Professor Tyndall, who was good enough to exhibit the young fish alive under the electric lamp, thereby adding so much to the general interest which I was most pleased to hear was caused among those present on the night of the Lecture.
